James Franco Talking About Sexual Harassment Allegations

James Franco on Sexual Misconduct Allegations: "The Things I Heard Are Not Accurate"

Following sexual misconduct allegations on Twitter earlier this week, James Franco broke his silence on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday. After the host pressed him about the allegations during their interview, The Disaster Artist star claimed that the accusations "are not accurate," before adding that he still completely supports people for speaking out. "They didn't have a voice for so long," he said. "So, I don't want to shut them down in any way. It's a good thing and I support it."

After the Golden Globes on Sunday night, James was met with criticism on social media for donning a Time's Up pin, which symbolises the fight against sexual harassment and assault in the workplace. The Breakfast Club actress Ally Sheedy voiced her disdain for the actor in a tweet that has since been deleted, writing, "Why is a man hosting? Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much. Nite love ya #goldenglobes." The two previously worked together in 2014 during an off-Broadway production of The Long Shrift, which James directed. "I have no idea what I did to Ally Sheedy," James said during The Late Show. "I directed her in a play Off Broadway. I had nothing but a great time with her, total respect for her."

In addition to Ally's tweets about James, actress Violet Paley also alleged that the actor has been inappropriate on several occasions, before claiming that he actually offered her and a few other girls "an overdue, annoyed, convenient phone apology." Since the allegations, The New York Times has cancelled a previously scheduled TimesTalk with James to talk about his film. See what else the actor had to say on The Late Show above.
